**Research objectives**Mathematical Modeling and numerical simulation allow for the virtual understanding, analysis, and optimization of almost all applications in geo-energy and hydropower. However, the extremely high complexity of the considered coupled physical systems (flow in fracture networks and porous media, hydro-thermal-mechanics, fluid structure interaction, wear, etc.) requires simulation tools which are tailored specifically to geothermal and hydropower applications. It is the goal of the central modeling facility to integrate and provide know-how in state-of-the-art simulation and optimization techniques and to develop new scientific simulation software within the SCCER-SoE. This is done in cooperation with the CSCS at ETHZ, so that the developed code can be optimized for recent and upcoming supercomputers at CSCS.
